The pair appeared sombre, both wearing all-black ensembles as a mark of respect. Much has been said that they both wore elegant wide-brimmed hats. Princess Kate looked sophisticated in a bespoke Alexander McQueen black coat dress, which she teamed with a pearl necklace that belonged to the Queen. She completed her look with the 'Halo Pillbox' hat by Jane Taylor London.

Kate sported dark brown eyeshadow and eyeliner...

But if you look closely, you can see that the royals both wore similar makeup looks. Kate sported her regular defined brows, with a muted brown smokey eye look. She framed her peepers with black eyeliner and added mascara. As her eyes were the centre point of her look, her lip colour was a delicate pink shade.

Meghan Markle also wore a similar look, except her brown eyeshadow was a little darker

It was a slightly darker tone than Kate's, but both ladies went for that smokey eye look that gives a bold finish. Meghan, 41, added eyeliner and mascara, and just like Kate, opted for a subtle nude lip.
